DGCL Sec. 103 - Filing requirements

Section 103 describes the requirements for filing corporate documents, where to file, what to file, and who has to sign which documents. Although this section may seem boring, it is actually an important one for practicing attorneys. As we work our way through the code, you will notice that some provisons will require documents be filed with the state in order for them to take effect. All such documents, including the certificate of incorporation, must be filed in compliance with §103.  You should familiarize yourself with §103's requirements.
